Law and Power

Part of the Law and Philosophy Library book series (LAPS, volume 90)


The fifth chapter resumes the discussion of the relationship between law and power, while power is now conceptualized through the notion of institution. Attention is now devoted to sociology of law and sociological doctrines. Kelsen’s solution thus appears more promising, once however power is no longer related to facticity or coercion or sanction, but rather to institutional facts and institutions.
